The Commons is being established as a peaceful, welcoming place where the whole community can gather. Its been a blessing to see folks still excited when they enter for the first time. We’re also pushing forward by adding more signage on the outside of the building, adding items like bagels to the menu, and offering coffee and food catering to groups that are using the upstairs event space. We've even left the building a few times in order to serve coffee at community events.
As we move forward, pray that The Commons would see an increase in foot traffic to both the laundromat and café, and that we could continue serving customers well with the resources we’ve been given.
